Just a quick update to confirm I am still here! Its been a really busy few weeks at Rancho Ricardo as I prepare for an exhibition in Bristol which is going to require me to drive down tomorrow morning to drop stuff off and attend the private view on Friday followed by a mad dash to get back up here before starting work at my new job on Monday!
I don't know what effect my job will have on my hobby time at present but its a much needed boost to the morale and it involves working in a bookshop once again!
Theres other things on the horizon too, which if they develop as I hope will mean a move of house and regular working hours which is something I really want to have as the last few years have been somewhat chaotic and involved living in 4 different cities at different ends of the country and serious strains put on my hobby budget and space. If said opportunity develops it will mean job security and somewhere to put down roots for a while which I really look forward to so fingers crossed!
Hobby wise, I am slowly putting together some Necromunda terrain but don't want to show it until I have a decent amount finished in the next couple of weeks. I am also working on clearing my last commissions so will hopefully have time to get on with some personal projects too before November.
I've also been sorting through my 15mm scale collection and am saddened to see that quite a few infantry figures are in need of a little TLC as they have been chipped so there will probably be a bit of a repair day on the horizon too.
I took the opportunity to take some pics of my Stainless Steel Rat villains, Count Cassitor of Rdunrundt!
Power Armoured Henchmen
Count Cassitor and Armed Underlings
The Counts Personal Armoured Car
I really like the little fellows and need to expand the force to a full platoon at some point including some heavy weapons and some more illicit weapons tech and possibly a cavalry squad in true Flash Gordon style. Most figures are Peter Pig while the vehicle is QRF. The infantry are WW1 French Dragoons but the helmets make for a perfect low tech villain force!
Heres a couple more vehicles I have bodged together over the years:
Automated Defence Vehicle
The Automated Defence Vehicle is the sort of thing that particularly security minded types use to protect their holdings and is originally a plastic Mechwarrior tank with the turret replaced.
Old Thunder, Farpoints Premier Armoured Vehicle
Old Thunder is the Farpoint Militias only heavily armoured vehicle and is so unreliable it tends to be used as a bunker more than an attack vehicle but its heavy plasma cannon can still kick quite a punch (even if it drains the vehicles fuel cells to do so!)
All the best!
